Been back at the Hostaria after two decades and what a great great surprise! Outstanding food and service, everybody was very professional yet so friendly. You really don't want to miss it, it comes at a price as usual around Lugano but you can ask for half portions.

Excellent service delivered with a smile, you really feel welcomed here! Food menu exhaustive ranging from meat to fish and veg. Very finely prepared and all details are carefully looked after. No windows in the main room, it was once most probably a cellar that has been modernly re-built with a very pleasent, warm atmosphere.

Hostaria del Pozzo is a very cozy place with a beautiful location in Canobbio overviewing Lugano city and lake. A family (Cristian and Lena) runs this restaurant carefully and with friendly atmosphere. The food is very fresh, meat, fish and also some typical dishes from Valtellina like Pizzoccheri, Zigoiner and Sciatt! The wine list is interesting and prices are correct.... More
